Due to the overwhelming response to the lyric video for the track ‘Clarity’ from their forthcoming album ‘Volition’, issued via Spinefarm Records on November 4th, Protest the Hero today release a lyric video for one of the more socially conscious songs on the record, ‘A Life Embossed’.
Lead singer Rody Walker, who wrote the lyrics for the track, says:
“The boys in PTH are long-time dog lovers, and it has come to our attention that there's injustice afoot! Our home of Ontario Canada is the largest territory in all the world to pass legislation that discriminates against a specific breed of dog. This is a worldwide issue that the band is incredibly disturbed by. The song and video for ‘A Life Embossed’ attempts to draw much-needed attention to an issue that effects all dog lovers alike.”
‘Volition’ will be supported by a world tour, starting November 7th in Ottawa, Canada, and in the UK on February 1st 2014.
Volition is also available for pre-order at http://goo.gl/Ksd93Q iTunes.
Protest the Hero will be returning to the UK in February 2014 as part of their headline European tour. Supporting Protest the Hero on this string of dates will be UK outfits Tesseract & The Safety Fire, plus Toronto-based Intervals.
